Thomas Bartley

Chapter President

Kellie works in policy and studies Bahasa Indonesia at Flinders University, having previously graduated with a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Adelaide. When she's not on the hunt for her favourite jajanan you will find her in the garden trying to grow all her food and Indonesian ingredients she can't buy in Adelaide. Kellie is interested in building an active and engaged community of young people in Adelaide who have a connection to Indonesia or Australia.
